Educational Opportunities May 23, 2023 Artstrek 2023 A Theatre Summer School for Teens Artstrek Theatre Alberta’s Artstrek is a summer theatre school for teens that offers professional learning opportunities from practising artists and educators in a collaborative space. Artstrek students leap into the depths of theatre appreciation and embrace the creative process through five daily classes: acting, devising, design, voice & singing, and movement & dance. Artstrek places an emphasis on creative exploration where each student receives an equal opportunity to participate and contribute. Once they become part of the Artstrek community, students develop lasting relationships and skills that will accompany them throughout their lives. Artstrek is not an audition-based program. Artstrek is all about serious fun, growth and development. How is Artstrek put together? Theatre Alberta recruits leading theatre educators and professional artists from across Alberta to teach at Artstrek. Our instructors bring extensive practical and academic knowledge to the program and connect participants directly to the theatre community in Alberta. Artstrek supervisors are responsible for students during free time. They ensure that students get to their classes on time each morning and get to sleep each night. Supervisors will also lead students in fun and engaging activities each evening. The supervisory team is made up of Artstrek alumni who have been away from the program for at least one year and are 20 to 25 years of age. The curriculum for Artstrek is developed around a play of study. Each year, a different play is chosen to be the central focus of the program. Each class at Artstrek takes inspiration from the selected play of study and will explore elements of the play in the context of the class being taught. Students will not perform the play in its entirety; instead the emphasis is on skill-building and exploration of the creative process. Exploration I This program is recommended for enthusiastic theatre lovers who are 12* to 15 years old. Exploration II This program is intended for 16 and 18 year olds who have a keen interest in theatre and a dedication to increasing their skill level.
